College days pass quickly and records are written on 
the pages of time and memory. Here in the 1957 Pine 
Knot we try to recapture the life and goals of our campus. 
We sincerely hope that in these pages will be preserved 
a pictorial record of our sports, our activities, our studies, 
and our good times. If we have succeeded in our attempts, 
then we feel justified in saying "well done."

The 1956 Pine Knot was dedicated to Kinsey 
Hall, the first building on the Atlantic Christian 
College Campus, which was demolished last sum- 
mer. On the cover of the 1957 Pine Knot, you 
will find a representation of our new classroom 
building, a building of which we can be proud. 
Though many of us left dear memories in Kinsey 
Hall, we can point out our new facilities and with 
a sense of pride in our heart say, "this is my 
Alma Mater." 



It is with a genuine feeling of pride 
that we dedicate to you the 1957 Pine 
Knot. We will always remember your 
friendly greetings, your untiring devo- 
tion, your words of wisdom and your 
understanding heart. With a deep sense 
of pride and humility, we dedicate the 
1957 Pine Knot to you, Dr. J. P. Tyndall.

The purpose of the Student Christian Associa- 
tion is to create an awareness of God in college 
life for each individual. The programs of the or- 
ganization are developed by the S.C.A. cabinet 
and are based on the student's interest. 

The programs vary in order to include worship, 
recreation, discussion and business. Each Tues- 
day evening the weekly meeting is held on the 
campus. Also once a month the S.C.A. sponsors 
a devotional chapel during the regular chapel 
period. 

Among the special events sponsored by the 
S.C.A. are Religious Emphasis Week, a Christmas 
program, World Day of Prayer Service, and Pre- 
Easter Week Services. 

The organization strives to promote Christian 
love and fellowship among the students and fac- 
ulty of the college, hoping that a binding tie of 
Christian love will always remain.

service held in Howard Chapel Friday. The principle speakers for the 
week were Mrs. James Wyker, Rev. Kermit Traylor, Rev. Charles Crank, 
Dr. H. G. Haney, and Mr. Clifford Peace. Through these guest speakers, 
the students were aided in "Fulfilling the Christian Dream" the theme

opportunity for self-expression. Membership 
is not limited, and those persons who are 
sufficiently interested, if not in acting but in 
make-up, lighting, and costuming, are en- 
couraged to join. This college year Stage and 
Script, under the direction of Mrs. Doris C. 
Holsworth, offered George Barnard Shaw's 
"Pygmalion," a three-act play, and "He," 
"Quare Medicine," and "Abstraction," three 
one-act plays.

Student Loan Funds 
And Scholarships 
Total $20,000 

By MARTHA SAUNDERS 

Atlantic Christian College has 
an approximate total of $20,000 in 
the student loan fund. Between 
75 and 80 students are now bene- 
fiting from this money, most of 
which is currently in use. Its dis- 
tribution is administered by the 
Loan Fund Committee, consisting 
of the business manager, dean of 
women, dean of men, and place- 
ment director. Applications are 
received from interested students, 
considered by this committee, and 
accepted or rejected on the basis 
of need and merit of the student 
and available funds. Some stu- 
dents repay these loans after grad- 
uation; some after the completion 
of a year's work. A list of the 
available loan funds may be found 
in the college catalogue. 

Scholarships fall under the two 
main heading of Tuition Scholar- 
ships and Named Scholarships. 
Among the first catagory are 
these: 

1. Academic Scholarships for 
validictorians and salutitorians of 
high schools in North Carolina, 
South Carolina, and Georgie, a- 
mounting to $25. per semester 
for as many as 8 semesters. Twen- 
ty-six students are now receiving 
these scholarships.

Phi Sigma Tau 

Frankie Herring had all the 
members of Phi Sigma Tau at her 
home for the weekly meeting on 
February 11. A variety of refresh- 
ments were served to the girls by 
the hostess, her mother, and her 
sister. All the members present 
had a good time, and we would 
like to thank Frankie and her 
mother for having us. 

Plans for Phi Sigma Tau's 
spring banquet have been under- 
way for some time, and all of 
the members are looking forward 
to the annual event in April. 

Phi Sigma Tau is going to spon- 
sor a dance in the gymnasium on 
March 8. The name of the dance 
is the Sock Hop; and, as the name 
implies, it will be a very infor- 
mal affair. So plan now to attend 
and have a good time. 

The sorority had decided to 
honor its outstanding member of 
the year by presenting her a "Wo- 
man of the Year" award. This 
award will be based on sorority 
and campus leadership, religion, 
scholarship, and outstanding work 
in the sorority. It will be present- 
ed' at the spring banquet.

Omega Chi continued its ac- 
tivities by having a Valentine

As we began scurrying around the campus in the fall, we treasured 
the thought of having the 1957 Pine Knot completed. The road has 
been long, hard, and weary, and much time has been spent in doing 
layouts, taking pictures, doing paste-ups, and typing. The Pine Knot 
Staff hopes that you enjoy our masterpiece now and through the years to 
come.

The first semester of this school year saw a change in the chorus of 
Atlantic Christian College. A new director, Mr. James Cobb, came upon 
our campus and it was not long before everyone knew that he had just 
the spirit we needed. Anyone could see that chorus was fun but hard 
work, too, as chorus members trudged to the chapel for extra rehearsals. 

Extra rehearsals began when 45 out of the 62 members signed up to 
go on a tour of North Carolina. The tour began October 28 and ended 
November 4 with a concert at the First Christian Church in Wilson. The 
chorus presented programs in various churches and schools, including 
television appearances in Charlotte and Greensboro. With all the excite- 
ment and fun, it might well be said that "A good time was had by all." 

Besides the chapel programs, the chorus also sang at Homecoming and 
gave a concert at Christmas. Another highlight was singing at the Annual 
Convention of the North Carolina Christian Churches. 

The principal work of the second semester was a Bach cantata, Christ 
lag in Todesbanden (Christ Lay in the Bonds of Death). This was pre- 
sented in one of the local Wilson churches and in Washington and 
Farmville.

BAND 



The 1956-57 edition of the Atlantic Christian College Band was under 
the baton of Mr. William Ramsay with Mr. Jimmie Harris, a Senior 
majoring in Music, as Assistant Director. During the year, our band was 
represented at the Homecoming Parade, the Christmas Parade in Green- 
ville, and the Christmas Parade in Wilson. The main concert was pre- 
sented in Howard Chapel during Homecoming.

The annual homecoming of Atlantic Christian College opened formally with the 
presentation of George Bernard Shaw's play, "Pygmalion," on Friday night, No- 
vember 16, 1956. During the intermission the candidates for Homecoming Queen 
were presented to the audience. The celebration was further highlighted by the Home- 
coming Parade on Saturday the 17th, with Miss June Young, sponsored by Phi Kappa 
Alpha Fraternity, reigning as Queen. An Alumni Luncheon followed the parade at 12:00. 
Dr. Arthur D. Wenger, A. C. C.'s new President, then presided over the dedication of 
the Classroom Building, the Administration Building, the Student-Arumni Center, now 
called the "Bohunk," and the college infirmary. Open house was observed from 2:00- 
4:00, so that the guests and alumni might visit the old and new buildings on campus. 
From 5:00-7:30, reunions and dinners were held by the various fraternities and so- 
rorities on campus. At 8:00 p.m. the A. C. C. Bulldogs challenged Pfeiffer College in a 
rip-snorting basketball game. The Bulldogs emerged victorious with a final score of 
93 to 77. During the halftime several awards were presented. The final event of the 
day was the Homecoming Dance held in Hardy Dining Hall, immediately following the 
game.

Jack McComas, Head Coach of the Atlantic Christian College Bulldogs since 1951, comes from a 
basketball state, Shelbyville, Indiana. After a hitch in service, he went to North Carolina State 
College where he starred as a forward and guard. His versatility and consistency earned him 
All-Conference honors his sophomore year. Later he played pro baseball in the Braves Farm 
System. 

McComas came to A.C.C. just after Intercollegiate football was dropped with the job of 
building up the A.C.C. basketball team. His hard work has paid off and A.C.C. has been well 
represented on the basketball court the past few years. This year, with only two regulars back, 
he has taken some senior reserves and some newcomers and built a contending club. 



BILL TOMLINSON 

Bill, former A.C.C. star, has returned his final year at A.C. to coach the Bullpups. Bill 
graduated from Charles L. Coon High School in 1950. He was selected to All-State honors and 
played in the East- West all-star game. He entered A.C. in the fall of 1950 but left before com- 
pleting a semester to join the Army. After getting out of the Army he returned to A.C. and took 
up where he left off with the A.C. basketball team. In 1954 he helped lead the Bulldogs to 
runner-up honors in the North State Tournament and was selected to All-Tournament Second 
Team. 

This year while playing a tough schedule of the better high school, junior college, and ama- 
teur teams, the Bullpups haven't done too well, but the coaching they received will help them 
to move up to the varsity in days to come. 




TEd Cloyd, the head of the Physi- 
cal Education Department, comes 
Ifrom Raleigh. He graduated from 
iDavidson College, did some grad- 
uate work at N. C. State College, 
later receiving his Masters de- 
gree from the University of 
North Carolina. He was a star 
performer on the tennis team at 
Davidson and is Coach of the 
Atlantic Christian College Tennis 

P;am. He is also the faculty ad- 
sor for the P.E. Majors and 
inors Club. 







Gordon E. Coker, Sam to his 
close friends, comes to Atlantic 
Christian College from Knox- 
ville, Tennessee. He graduated 
from University of Tennessee 
with a B.S. degree in 1951 and 
later received his M.S. from the 
same school in 1955. He taught 
P.E. and served as track coach 
for five years at Knox County 
High School before coming to 
A.C. Here at A.C. he teaches in 
the Physical Education Depart- 
ment, is head of the Intramural 
Department, and will be head 
coach of the Track Team. 



Miss Mickey Raynor, a graduate 
of A.C.C., returned to the cam- 
pus as an instructor in Physical 
Education this year. She hails 
from Wilson and is a graduate 
of Charles L. Coon High School. 
She graduated from Atlantic 
Christian in 1954 but returned 
the following year for additional 
study. During the 1955-56 school 
year she taught at South Boston, 
Virginia. She plans to enter 
graduate school in the near 
future. 



Ann Edwards, still a student at 
A.C.C., due to a shortage of 
Women P.E. teachers, has been 
called on to teach and act as 
assistant in the Women's P.E. 
Department. She will complete 
her A.B. degree this spring with 
a major in P.E. and a minor in 
Math. She was a graduate of 
Bailey High School in 1953 and 
has been active in several clubs 
and in the Sigma Tau Chi So- 
rority. She is President of W.R.A. 
and of the Physical Education 
Club.

WOMEN'S INTRAMURAL 



The Women's Intramural Program of Atlantic Christian 
College is organized primarily for women on campus in- 
terested in sports. The program is directed by the Intra- 
mural Council. 

During the first semester the activities included contests 
in volleyball, soccer, and a Play Day. The second semester 
included basketball, tennis, softball, and ping-pong. The 
competing groups ranged from sorority and dormitory 
women to day students. 

The activities of the intramural program required a 
great deal of planning! It is only through the Intramural 
Council that the women can have a beneficial and enter- 
taining program.

TENNIS 






The 1956 Tennis team of Atlantic Christian College did not do so well 
in their second year of collegiate tennis, with inexperience being the main 
factor. However, determination made up for the lack of experience and 
the team made a showing of which we can be proud. The team was made up 
of Billy Widgeon, Chuck Hester, Gurney Collins, Joe Bell Richardson, 
Darwin Williams, and Del Whitley. Coach Ed Cloyd, with most of his team 
returning, is looking forward to a better 1957 season. 




..■ ■.-,-.. ■ 



TRACK 




Atlantic Christian College's first track team in recent years made its 
first showing at the Atlantic Coast Conference Indoor Meet. Perry Moore, 
Bob Wimberly, Jimmy Cale, Carl Weaver, Bill Britt, Claude Anthony, 
Max Barber, and Pete Williams were the boys carrying the Atlantic 
Christian College colors. 

Other meets were held with East Carolina, a triangular meet with Elon 
and Lenoir Rhyne, another with Carolina and Wake Forest freshman 
teams. In all meets, the boys worked hard, but inexperience was too hard 
to overcome. 

In their final meet the boys in blue finished fourth. This was in the 
North State Conference Meet. Boyd Owens, David Pitts, Seth Hughes, 
Carl Weaver, Pete Williams were the boys participating for Atlantic 
Christian. 

This year, with lettermen Pete Williams, Seth Hughes, and Carl Weaver 
still around, Coach Coker hopes to do even better.

BASEBALL 



The diamond warfare for the Bull-I 
dogs in the spring of 1956 did not quite 
compare with the basketball team, but 
nevertheless, the baseball squad had a 
good season. They suffered from the 
loss of some good players, but made up 
for this loss by spirit and teamwork. 
The team was coached by Jack McComas 
and Ronald Percise, former A.C.C. star. 
The team is looking forward to a good 
season in the spring of 1957.

JUNIOR VARSITY BASKETBALL 

Atlantic Christian's Bullpups, under the coaching reins of Billy Tom- 
linson, played a rough schedule of high school, junior college, college 
freshman, and semi-pro teams this year. The little "Dogs" battled through 
a 14 game schedule and finished with a 6-8 record. 

The JV team was led in scoring and rebounding by Bobby Dunn, 
freshman from Pinetops; Don Kasmer, sophomore from Syracuse, N. Y.; 
and Dick Godfrey, sophomore from New York City. The floor play and 
outside scoring was lead by Don Craft, freshman from Pinetops; and Jim 
Burnette, freshman from Oxford. Other players who saw plenty of action 
were Cliff Hedgepeth, Larry Phares, Ron Northcott, Dave Harvey and 
Ernie Price.

VARSITY 
BASKETBALL 




The 1957 edition of the Atlantic Christian. Christian College Bulldogs finished the 
season with a 16-10 over-all record and 10-6 conference record. The loss of four vet- 
erans from last years squad and the increased strength of the conference was greatly 
felt even though the McComas men finished in a tie for fourth place. 

The Bulldogs saw their home court winning streak halt at 33 as Presbyterian downed 
them in the second home game of the season. In conference play, they got off to a good 
start by defeating Catawba at home and High Point on the Panther's home court, before 
Lenoir Rhyne caught the Bulldogs cold at home. The Bulldogs ran hot and cold the rest 
of the season. 

During the Christmas holidays, the Bulldogs journeyed to Parris Island, S. C. for the 
Christmas Invitational Tournament. After losing a close one to Erskine in the first round, 
the Bulldogs rallied to win the next two over arch-rival East Carolina and Rollins. This 
was the first of three victories that the Bulldogs were to score over East Carolina during 
the season. In the North State Conference A.C. defeated High Point in a real thriller in 
the first round but lost to Lenoir Rhyne in the second round as the Bears swept the con- 
ference, championship. 

Off somewhat offensively from last year, the Bulldogs did finish with a respectable 
82.2 scoring average. Jack Underwood led with a 19.7 average, with Billy Widgeon and 
John Marley close behind with 18.4 and 18.0 average respectively. 

A.C.C. also claimed honors nationally as Billy Widgeon ranked high in free throw per- 
centage and John Marley ranked on top with an average of 25 rebounds per game. The 
team ranked very high also in these two departments. 

The Bulldogs will be hard hit next year as they lose seven seniors. John Marley, Billy 
Widgeon, Charles Hester, Ronald Baker, Charles Hutchins, Doug Gregg, and Dick Ward 
have finished their court warfare for the Bulldogs.
